Reason they doing it is bc Texas has very stable economy. And Obama Well he's inherited his own increased national debt. Not a national debt this time but an increased one. Don't people know that a four year track record speaks louder than words. I am neither Republican nor Democrat. My opinion.

I don't want you thinking you can move here after the big Kentucky earthquake. We "pusses" don't want your kind here. We rednecks are doing just fine without you. Yes sir, you just stay right there where you are, that's what the "morons" do.

First of all, Texas has the third largest debt amount in the United States, right after California and New York. So define stable for me, because we are obviously not on the same page.

Second, lets say Texas does secede from the Union. Money is federal, and is backed by gold right here in good old Kentucky. So the minute that Texas gains independence, every last penny within state lines becomes worthless. So now every last person that lives in Texas now gets to begin trading goods and services in leiu of spending money. This is just one example.

These people are too dumb for words to describe.

Wrong about the Texas debt. The State of Texas Constitution prohibits the Legislature to set a budget that will create a deficit. Texas only has their general obligations bonds as debt and that is secured debt.
U.S. currency is not backed by gold, or silver. It's only worth the promise of the Federal Government. And you don't have as much gold in Fort Knox as you think you do.
And as for the trade issue, if Texas decides to sell it's oil, gasoline, and natural gas on the open market, and that market is not within the United States, there are going to be a lot of cold people in Kentucky. Of course, Texas can print up it's own currency like Europe did, then just drive up the price of it's oil, gas, beef, corn, sorghum grain, concrete, and asphalt in dollars for exchange, then we will see how much you are willing to pay for those materials.
I think you will look pretty dumb trying to drive you car with no gas, heat and cool your house without electricity, and #9 Louisville lost to unranked Syracuse while Texas A&M beat #1 Alabama. It's already looking good for us rednecks.

The money we use is federal, no big deal. Texas can create their own money. Just a technicality.

And NO, NO NO NO NO. Our money IS NOT backed by gold.

Yes, technically Texas along with every other state is broke with this fiat currency. It would not be a stretch to create a monetary system that is actually worth something. The only thing our current financial system is backed by is someones word that we will pay our debt.

The fact is, it is the people themselves that backs our currency. That and along with our property. See, when the US defaults on a loan which we have numerous times, the only way to start paying it back is to take peoples property.

Worst case scenario would be that if China called in its debt, the people would be forced to go work in Chinese factories to pay off our debt.

You all should really research the Federal Reserve and how it operates. It operates based on debt. The Federal Reserve cannot exist without debt, why do you think there is no great push to get us out of debt.

I mean there is kind of a push to get us out of debt?
See I kinda agreed with you until you went koolaid on us.
Back to the POST, however,
Texas is broke yes.
Texas wouldn't make it as their own place for long, Mexico would put that shot on cinder blocks.

Plus the average population of Texas is, well....texans...

By all means Texas... NOONE is stopping you

Think what you will.
But the Federal Reserve is about as federal as Federal Express.

The Federal Reserve is a business owned by banks(to name a few, Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi). Then there are 10 private investors 3 are US based, then the other 7 are in other countries.

It has a lot to do with it when someone asked what they would use for money if they seceded.

I am not so sure we have any gold at all in Ft. Knox. I believe the Federal Reserve stole it. After all, when was the last time someone got to see it.

Oh I don't know if there is any there either.. I just stated that because someone else had said that we had all the gold here... And I was wrong they aren't all southern states either New York and New Jersey have also filed.. I'm not gonna worry about it I'm gonna move to Colorado and get some of that " f*ck it" in my system! I'm not gonna stress myself out over things I can't control... I did what I could by voting and now what happens is out of my control!
